While creating website designs, developers often opt for background grids that help them measure page elements and decide on their placement. While grid bookmarklets are popularly used for this purpose, you need to click them every time you refresh the page. Here to offer a more convenient solution is GriddleIt.
GriddleIt is a user-friendly web service that generates useful grids for website designers. The grids are generated by a URL in the following format:
http://griddle.it/[total width]-[number of columns]-[gutter size]
You can enter the values of your desired grid and set the URL as your design’s background. That way the grid will automatically load up each time you visit your design.
Apart from the simple options of setting the total width of the grid, number of columns, and gutter size, you can also specify the column length, change the default colors, and remove the guide numbers. All of these options can be set using the various URL formats provided on GriddleIt’s website.
